The free flight of cash from my wallet continues unabated, week after week, thanks to the recommendations of Board Game Geek's erstwhile and enthusiastic throng. Here, then, are the casualties of paychecks past.

Feel free to add your own.

When I arrived at the Geek, I asked about dungeon crawls. This was one of the first to come up. Strangely, it's taken me almost a year and a half to actually buy the thing. I can now use the box as an impromptu coffee table while I wait for my gaming group to have enough time to devote to this glorious monstrosity.

Should the FBI, CIA, the Freemasons, the Illuminati, the Benevolent Order of Burger Kings or any other secret society ever infiltrate my domicile, they will discover my master plan. Or at least, they will be able to divine that it somehow involves taking over the world with an ever-growing army of tiny plastic figures.

(two ... three ... four ...) Let's Dungeon Twist, like we did last summer ... Let's Dungeon Twist again, like we did last year ...

Another one of the Dungeon Crawl recommendation. Makes my brain hurt. :o

I owned Betrayal At House On The Hill, but I missed this game. I'm so glad that I heard about it here. Bought mine for around $10, I think, and it's worth much more than that.

Same thing for Vegas Showdown. I wouldn't own it if it wasn't for the consistent praise it garners here. Thanks, BGG. When I'm on the street because I can't pay my bills, at least I'll have all of these game boxes to build a fort with.

I had never heard of this game before I came to the Geek, but it was soon obvious that if I planned to remain a member, a copy was mandatory. How else would I ever comprehend those clever double entendres about wood and sheep?

I had heard of the original, but thought it long out of print and despaired of ever owning a copy. Lo and behold, I arrived in sufficient time to realize that you just can't keep a good undead overlord down. Even with a stake through his dark, dark heart.

I have actually managed to get my girlfriend's family addicted. This was, I think, my first Tanga purchase as well. So it's addiction all around! The scoring system is still somewhat convoluted, we find, but once you get the hang of it you want to keep coming back.

"What do you mean you don't own Carcassonne?" the robed minions croaked. "But do you not frequent the Geek? This ... blasphemy ... is not possible!"

"Puh ... Please!" I stammered. "I ... I shall buy a copy as soon as I can!"

"See that you do," the leader of the robed ones said, stepping close. The stench of cheese-flavored puffs, the good kind, not the generic store brand, wafted from within the cowl that hid his face.

They howled as one, their burning eyes sending a chill into the innermost depths of my soul, before they faded into the unforgiving night.

I had never even heard of this before coming here. My copy just arrived today (Nov. 26, 2007). I'm already thinking of picking up the expansion. I love all things Arthurian, and so this is a very natural fit.
